About the Costume

It’s not known where this beautiful gown originated. It was first seen in 1972 on Jane Seymour as Karoline Strauss in the television mini-series The Strauss Family in the episode Hetti. It was next seen in the BBC series The Onedin Line, again on Jane Seymour as the character Emma Callon. Ribbons were added to the front of the bodice to give it a different look. 

Strangely, The Onedin Line was a BBC production, while The Strauss Family was from ITV. At the time, the BBC had its own costume department, so it’s slightly odd that this piece would go from one studio to another. For this reason, it’s possible that this piece was rented from a costume house. 

The piece was used a third time in 1975’s Edward VII, where it was worn by Helen Ryan, depicting Princess Alexandria.
